Hall 2 carries the hallmark of the Basel trade fair centre: the big clock on the facade above the main entrance. The most eye-catching feature of the interior is the unique circular courtyard with its galleries. This is the perfect setting for all kinds of events featuring open-air activities. Hall 2 is linked to Hall 1 via an overhead walkway.
